Hi ya, Everyone:

Has anyone else been seeing a LOT of the content farms that were slapped last year by Panda 1 and 2 make a return to the top of the SERPs?

I'm having to do some painting / remodeling work and that area seems to be owned by the content farms - often outranking long established sites focused specifically in that area.

Unfortunately, the bing results are not much better than google's.

It seems the key is to have exact match titles and poorly written articles that link to very similar poorly written articles on the same topic, that have only slight variations.

Whatever those sites are doing, seems like there might be a good lesson to be learned there.

Yes ..I mentioned in a recent thread , Ehow is back in the top 5 for very many terms for which it was demoted last year immediately after the first run of Panda..

Yep , either both major SEs have dialed back the "remove the human scraped / human respun short word wiki crap" ..or Ehow for short..because it makes G ( at least ) bazillions in adsense ..Google could terminate all the other adsense publishers and buy Ehow, and just keep all the adsense money "in house"..

Or the SE's really don't care that Ehow is ripping off everyone else's IP..and know that the rest of us could never afford the legal fees to stop them ourselves..as they'd starve us to death while they stalled in the courts..

Well, I just don't see why people who are experts in their field are going to continue to write quality content when they will be outranked by a plagiarized article written by some 17 year old kid trying to earn some weed money.

planet they are not. Personally I have given up entirely. Forget the internet as we used to know it, its over.
I am being slammed by sites using my content and a backlink catalouge of paid blog links, been that way since panda.

You mean owned by content farms, or by The Content Farm? Because I do see Ehow everywhere, but many other, smaller content farms that used to rank pre-Panda are nowhere to be found.

You know, when you steal others content, you need to steal on a really large scale in order to get away with it. That's true I guess not only for content. All industries, Wall Street included, work the same way ...

yes but simply fits in with the demise of the smaller sites.
